Chicago, IL

Astronomy on Tap Chicago is a joint effort between University of Chicago and Northwestern University.

We have hosted events all around Chicago but recently settled on semi-regular events at Begyle Brewing Company (1800 W Cuyler Ave, Chicago, IL 60613). We also do trivia at Adler After Dark, a 21+ event hosted by The Adler Planetarium on the third Thursday of each month.

Be sure to follow AoTChicago on Twitter and Facebook.
